Study coverage

This study analyzes the world construction aggregates industry. It presents historical data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) for markets demand (e.g., residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding), plus demand by product (e.g., crushed stone, sand gravel, other) and by application (e.g., hydraulic concrete, asphaltic concrete, road base and coverings, other), in 6 regions and 37 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles global industry competitors.

Demand gains for crushed stone and alternative aggregates -- such as recycled concrete, fly ash, and slag -- will, be stimulated by healthy gains in all types of construction thru much of the world. Residential building applications for aggregates will be fueled by upturns in the housing markets of developed countries and by rising personal incomes in developing countries, which will spur demand for more modern housing.

Illegal mining activities restricting growth in developing markets

Sand and gravel reserves are shrinking across much of the world, and illegal sand mining plagues a number of developing markets that have rapidly growing sand consumption requirements. As efforts to curb illegal mining activities have been largely unsuccessful, sand and gravel reserves in many countries are expected to be depleted at a rapid pace through 2019. This will result in price hikes, especially in urban centers where demand for aggregates is sizable, and will lead construction firms to turn to more favorably priced items. Alternative aggregates, in particular, are typically price-competitive with virgin aggregates since they are construction and industrial waste products that would otherwise be sent to a landfill.

China to remain largest consumer, will represent nearly half of global sales

Gains will be fastest in the Asia/Pacific region, with India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia recording the most rapid increases. Although growth in the Chinese market will slow going forward, China will remain by far the largest national consumer of aggregates in 2019. The Africa/Mideast region will also record rapid growth, with all major national markets recording gains above the world average. In Central and South America, a number of government-backed affordable housing programs will help resuscitate the region’s residential construction industry and support aggregates market gains.
